#### Content

Function: content (<p_1>, <x_1>, ..., <x_n>) Returns a list whose first element is the greatest common divisor of the coefficients of the terms of the polynomial <p_1> in the variable <x_n> (this is the content) and whose second element is the polynomial <p_1> divided by the content.

Examples:

```          (%i1) content (2*x*y + 4*x^2*y^2, y);
2
(%o1)                   [2 x, 2 x y  + y]```

There are also some inexact matches for `content`. Try `?? content` to see them.

```(%o1)                                true
(%i2) ```
